Back in May, rapper, DJ and record producer Swizz Beatz was named creative director for Reebok Classics. His first release, the Kamikaze Limited Edition shoe, sold out in 10 minutes.
Swizz recently tweeted the image of his next creation—the Triple Black Kamikaze—which drops in stores on Friday, July 8. These are the kicks that Rick Ross customized with gold paint and wore during the Hot 97 Summer Jam in NYC earlier this month.
The monochromatic Triple Black Kamikaze is a high-top sneaker with an upper made of leather, nylon and suede. It incorporates 3-pod Hexalite sole technology for superior cushioning and systematically-placed flex grooves on the outsole for added traction.
Watch the video below to get a feel for the Kamikaze III collection.
For fun, check out the original Kamikazes in this 1995 commercial starring former NBA forward Shawn Kemp.
The new Triple Black Kamikaze will be available at select retailers [see below] for $100.
